This article contains two case reports that illustrate the difficulty two mothers experienced when they mechanically expressed their milk for their very preterm infants. Each of the mothers was enrolled in a separate research study and had previously undergone surgery for breast augmentation. Neither of the mothers was able to provide an adequate milk supply for her preterm infant. Preoperative counseling and informed consent for breast augmentation is vital if the mother desires to exclusively provide mother’s milk for the infant.
